Top 10 Teams!

Congratulations to our Top 10 Teams who will receive a team tent at this year's Walk Ahead Event and recognition on next year's Walk Ahead 2022 event shirt!  

The University of Cincinnati Brain Tumor Center, a regional destination, provides innovative and compassionate care for patients with brain tumors while striving to find cures and discover why these tumors occur. 

Funds from our past events have helped us achieve new benchmarks in brain tumor research.  Each year, this event helps support at least two pilot research grants for our UC researchers who are determined to find a brain tumor cure. 

Several of these projects have led to clinical trials, including one that could change the face of cancer treatment.

Your Participation Creates Impact!

Why do you walk?

Participating in memory or in honor of someone? Recognize that person with our downloadable race bibs! 

Download, print, and share who you are participating for and then post photos and videos tagging the Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure Facebook Page to let the world know why you participate! 

Not near a printer?  Bibs will be also available on race day at Sawyer Point!
